Simple Steps Community Connection (aka Simple Steps) was founded in May 2017 in an effort to support immigrant communities in the Bay Area. Our main cause is empowering immigrant women to return to the workforce and rebuild their careers after a hiatus, an issue that touches many women, particularly those with immigrant backgrounds. Simple Steps recognizes the challenges encountered by them in tapping significant resources and seeks to provide greater opportunities for the communities.


Simple Steps aims to empower immigrant women to rebuild their careers after a hiatus by pursuing the following mission:

  • Promoting self-awareness and self-esteem of immigrant women on a break
  • Providing those immigrant women with skill training sessions and career coaching
  • Connecting experienced and skilled immigrant women with greater job opportunities


Having grown up in Korea, Doyeon moved to the U.S. at the age of 30. She personally experienced and witnessed the difficulties encountered by immigrant women in returning to the workforce due to cultural and language barriers and lack of professional network. Doyeon met a lot of professionally accomplished and talented immigrant women who wanted to reenter the work but didn’t know how to start. Simple Steps hopes to build a community for immigrant women so that they can pursue their career aspirations and move toward achieving their goals.
